Count Me In.

i'm game...count me in.

I'm in as well.

I'm in if there's still room.

sloppy jalopies aren't fans of the europas... none of 'em in the corral !...
if you need a 16th entry, i'll see if BERNIE and Fast Fred can fill the void...

If slot is still open, I'd like to enter

Well that's 8 entries...but if more people want to join I'm cool with that...just not sure how to run the tournament with an odd number of entrants and/or cars. What do you guys normally do for that type of situation?

Lets say 10 people enter, each provide 2 cars for 20 total. How do you choose who's extra cars make up the last 6 slots?

In preliminary testing of 12 cars, the 2 fastest were the Honda Civic and the Aston Martin DBS......I guess I will see if I chose wisely. Of course nothing is written in stone yet.

Go to this site: www.printyourbrackets.com/

You can make up any size bracket you want for single or double elimination. I used it for 17 entries it worked well and no byes.

Okay, well, I think understand how this crazy bracket works...I'll give it a shot a least.

So I'll remove the entry limit but change requires to send only 1 car instead of 2. Less for everyone to worry about and ship.

Entry will be open until next Wednesday, 8/28. We'll close entries then and see how many people have signed up. I'll then post the bracket structure based on what the bracket site spits out.

...clearing the mud before hand.

Yes, Everlings is correct that the Honda wouldn't qualify for this race. European cars only, nothing from Asia. So no Honda, Mitsubishi, Toyota, etc.

And the must be real world Euro cars, no Fantasy class cars that "look" European.

This link should make everything clear as mud

Oh now I see Japan is not in Europe.....

I'm thinking this may be my entry. If it doesn't go to the "Born" tournament.

Not sure it's over 50 grams though.

I'd like to participate too....(Borrowed Image)

1984 HW 'Quik Trik' from the original Ultra Hots line-up(51.5g stock). Its basically a renamed Ferrari 308. My example is a Hong Kong version and has the thinner gauge axles which were standard on early UH vehicles. It met my expectations with some preliminary track tests...a bit more 'tuning' and its goin' to Ohio.


GspeedR

Hmmm...well, I was hoping to keep this to cars that are actually stamped with European car names. Yes, we all see this is based on a Ferrari but technically that car is "Quik Trik" which would be classified as a Fantasy car since it's not truly a Ferrari.

I was trying to avoid this because then it opens up a bunch of "well that car looks like a Jaguar" type stuff. Fair enough?

Cars need to be named real world cars, not cars "inspired by" real world cars. When it doubt, check the bottom of the car.

Fair enough....I certainly have something else that will officially conform to the rules.

It has a Hot Wheel-given name, and it isn't painted like a real-world car, but isn't it still a Ferrari 308?

I believe this will be my entry.

Ferrari F512M FTE

Technically, it is...but I still understand Brian's point about the cars being labeled correctly in order to participate. The host's rules are the final word and I'm completely fine with that.

dig it!

Here is a stupid but concerned question. I was wondering since you only race stock cars on your track are modifications allowed?......

I hope so, cause mine isn't stock.

...are modifications allowed?

Absolutely! ...that was my assumption, actually. I have to run stock only for the Fantasy league, otherwise it's anything goes. If you want to enter a stock, feel free, otherwise pimp the hell out a car and send it in!

Brian, what is your current track layout/set up? same as on the "tracks" link? kicker, hill?

Standard kicker track, same used in the Fantasy League every week.

Maybe dust off the "TR Sicks"
Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox

Very good looking ride.....I like all the detailing.......

TR Sicks is out, The "Son of Wild Thing" will be finally entered into a race. Wild Thing 1 was lost in the Mail & WT II was bumped out for TR Sicks in another race. Tested OK and will already make weight.

That was a kind of VW wasn't it?

Is a 1992 Audi Avus Quattro legal?

Audi is good, it's German (or close enough).

And if it's a concept car that's fine as long as it's an "official" model of a maker like Audi. So if it's a Jaguar XKD Prototype, that would be valid to enter.

Thanks, this will be my third build for this race. My other 2 were fast but just not fast enough.

"That was a kind of VW wasn't it?"
Yup, a VW "Thing" The aerodynamics of a brick.

Decisions...Decisions. Not sure what to work on yet, starting my search with cars that roll poorly (FTE cars excluded)
Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox

The Fantasy League ratings/records may help you decide which model of car to use as a base. Lots of options.

www.redlinederby.com/fantasy/car ... ilter+cars

Out of that photo, the 928 is a pretty good roller on the RLD track.

Brian, the 928 is fast as it sits....

I have another car in mind.....before I get too far along with this car. I need to know if it is legal. I believe it is sold as a Porsche P-911, but the base of the car just has Hot Wheels 1998. Like the 308 listed above, I want to be sure I am working on a viable project.

I got one of those within the past two years--a blue one--and I'm pretty sure it said "Porsche [of some sort]" on the package, if that helps any.

many castings found in a 5 or 10 pack don't have the names cast into the base !

If it's not stamped on the bottom but is otherwise clearly a Porsche or whatever, then it's fine. I have some of the unstamped cars too. Just in the case of that one Ferrari it was given a different name for whatever reason by Hot Wheels so I see that as another class. This is how I keep Fantasy League cars organized so I just need to keep things consistent so I don't confuse myself.

The Porsches I have in my collection came from a 5-pack and are unstamped too so no worries. I don't want to be a nazi, just want to be fair and have it not be too much of a headache for myself.

Just a bump to get anyone that still wants to get in on this tournament. Post a reply if to enter.
Current entrants are shown on the first page, double-check yourself there.

I see we have 8 racers committed, if no one else joins will we be allowed to enter more than one car? Personally the more different racers, the better.


Don't forget me!!!!! Sending out the Wild Thing this weekend.

I see we have 8 racers committed, if no one else joins will we be allowed to enter more than one car? Personally the more different racers, the better.

We're keep this to one car per person. An odd number of cars is okay since I'll be using the brackets from the other web site to guide me. Plus that's less for all of us to ship back-and-fourth.

Okay, I got an Aston Martin DBS coming your way on Monday....Hope it does better than I'm doing in the Kharvest Drags.....

if the ANGLIA is cool I would like to enter... also an RDR buddy sent me an audi, can I enter it for fast fred ?

Sure thing, Smitty. The Anglia is a UK car and the Audi certainly qualifies, so send them both in. I'll add you to the entry list.

Nice paint Smitty. Great color.....Now Clayfeat wants in on this....her car will be there soon RLD if she is welcome.

It's a Bentley Continental Supersport.....I think that's Euro......

color was fred's choice... i never test, but the thing coffee table rolls very well ! go fred go !

I know registration is closed, but would you like any other teams to fill the field? Got a letter from cooper and he'd like me to enter cars from his collection whenever there's a good fit.

Sure, we can take more entries, so send in what you have - just make sure you clearly mark which cars belong which person.

We'll close entry for good on 9/22 as that's a month out from the race date.

Cool. Then weber cabin racing is in.

Okay Clayfeats car is going out tomorrow. a 2008 VW Scirrocco GT24 she says its fast. I don't know.

My legal entry was shipped out today...PM sent to RLD.

ok G, what is your un- legal entry ?

ok G, what is your un- legal entry ?

Its @ the top of page 2 of this topic...no worries though, rules are rules and it will see another mail-in soon. My entry for this series is my trusty BMW M1(2012 Hot Ones). It did OK in the MC2, but its since been re-tuned with a few extra grams. Best of all, its name is on the chassis.

I'll be live blogging the race with photos and I'm going to also try and do some video highlights...we'll see...

GO B GO !

Had to pack the interior full of putty just to make the minimum weight requirement of 50 grams.
Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox

Received Nightstalker's VW181 this weekend. I'll be making my last post office stops next Saturday so all you last-minute folks still have a few days to get them shipped out.

Racing is next Sunday and I'll be posting photos of all the cars, etc.

I'll be sending mine Tuesday.

Darn the post office is closed today. Curse you Columbus!!!

My Euro car is on the way to Ohio.

Mine got mailed today, Priority. Supposed to be there Friday.

80 gram JL new Beetle with FTEs. Yes, I did a wheel swap on a JL. Hoping it runs better than other JLs I've sent in with the stock wheels. We'll (no pun intended) just have to wait and see.

I'll be making a pickup Saturday and getting things ready for Sunday. I'm looking forward to it...been a while since I've raced some cars so glad to start up again.

GO "B" GO !

Redline Derby Racing at it's finest!!!
Have fun Brian!!

^^^What Schmitty and Jim said^^^

I've finally got a weekend off so I hope to keep up with the racing on Sunday.

Can't wait to see what you send in. Hope it's not that Lamborghini Estoque

Nope, it's not THAT one!
It is in West VA right now.

got my w. va. cars yesterday

Well, I hope everyone's cars made to OH safely. I'm really looking forward to the results from this race and I'll be more than satisfied if my Bimmer makes it past the first round. I've been asked to be a judge in a car show tomorrow, so I won't get to see the results until I come back home tomorrow night...aw, man...I'll be missing this event gearhead.

Bring on the Euro racing action!!! Thanks for hosting and organizing Brian!

Just 4 da' record, its not intended to be taken seriously...I have a feeling it'll be "seeing" some rear bumpers

Garrand ?

We will be a checkin' in tonight to see how the "Son of Wild Thing" did.
Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox

Just finished up the racing...whew! Lots of distractions today so the live blogging didn't work out like I had hoped. Also spent some time trying to get decent video that I can cut together, hopefully it'll turn out okay.

Gonna organize files and then post results and some photos...video will later, possibly mid-week.

Check back soon......

First off, a HUGE thanks to everyone that sent in cars. This was a lot of fun to organize and race, I had forgotten how much fun the custom races can be. Lots of really cool mods today under somewhat tight restrictions in the Euro bodies. Well done, all of you. Enjoy the photos below and I hope to have video some time this week. There's a lot to cut together so it may day me a bit but it'll get done.

I would also like to thank Tom's Diecast Cars for once again sponsoring our tournaments. Tom's been a great partner over the past year providing prizes for both mail-in and Fantasy League races. Can't thank him enough. Make sure you stop by his web site - www.tomsdiecastcars.com - and let him know you appreciate his support.

This was a double elimination tournament so every car raced twice, and after all was said and done...
A full recap from the day...
It was a brisk day in Ohio but the sun was shining and everyone was happy to see the Redline Derby track stretched out in all its glory.

The Euro Grand Prix sponsored by Tom's Diecast Cars kicked off early with car check-in, track setup and video prep. Eleven race teams entered this double-elimination contest. Cars from came from both coasts and everywhere in between. Everyone brought their best game and their best cars to race on the standard 20-foot track.

Seeding was random so things kicked off with Dadvball's VW Beetle. The first time down, the taxi crashed and burned seemingly due to its weight but a redo saw it stick...but it was all for not, as the VW got the flag, sending Clifford's cab to the loser's bracket.

Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox

GSpeedR's sleek BMW but talk is cheap as GSR's Beamer took the flag.

Finishing out the first round in the top bracket, Smitty's jacked up Anglia gasser, proudly named "Moglia." It was a pretty close race but The Thing proved that Euro cars might not be Smitty's bag after all.

The second round kicked off with a VW showdown as Dadvball's Beetle went head-to-head with Clayfeat's sporty Sirocco. The Sirocco had the luxury of watching Dadvball race in the first round and she took advantage of it, as the Sirocco zoomed passed the Beetle in what would kick off a small streak for the GT car.

Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox

Next saw Stroller's Aston Martin come to the line against JDC442's Jaguar D-Type that had already made quick work of Fast Fred. Maybe it was nerves or maybe the sun got in his eyes, but the Aston just couldn't keep up and little everyone know that from this point on, JDC's Jag wouldn't be looking back.

Wrapping up the round was GSR's BMW and McJiggles' stock Ferrari Modena...yes, you heard correctly, stock. Putting faith in your stock car against a bunch of custom racers is quite a leap but it's a leap that worked out because the little Ferrari took the victory in what was a wonderful match-up. The BMW might have lost but he had his eye on revenge...

The Loser's Bracket then got off to an incredible start...a tie! Fast Fred and Smitty butted heads and saw their first race split the flags in a two. A rematch quickly followed that saw Fast Fred edge out Smitty's tough gasser.

Meanwhile, GSR's white BMV was taking names in the lower bracket. After three victories over Clifford Shaw, Stroller and Nightstalker he sat waiting, hoping his nemesis McJiggles would join him. But he would have to wait until McJiggles squared off against the rampaging JDC442. The first match-up was too close to call...another tie! But the follow-up saw the Jaguar win by an eyelash sending McJiggles to the lower bracket. Would GSpeedR redeem himself?

McJiggles first had to overcome the VW Beetle of Dadvball first which almost didn't happen. Yet another impossible race to predict but the stock Ferrari out-paced the Volkswagen and finally the rematch was here. Revenge was within GSpeedR's grasp...

Diecast Cars, Hot Wheels, Matchbox

But they had to wait until JDC's Jag was done dealing with Clayfeat's VW GT. The Sirocco had gone undefeated thus far, surprising many in the crowd. It was a good showing by the German but the British build good cars too and the Jaguar once again chalked up another win. The Sirocco was sent to the lower bracket to face the winner of The Rematch.

The crowd was roaring as the two cars pulled up to the line. One half of the grand stand was squarely behind the GSR's BMW while the other half was cheering on the Ferrari of McJiggles. The winner of this would continue in the lower bracket with a chance to be in the championship round to face the dreaded Jaguar D-Type.

Could a stock car beat out a tuned one? The tree lit, tires squeeled, babies cried and eagles soared...it was neck and neck but after 20-feet of hard rolling the BMW captured the line. This might be the loser's bracket but redemption is redemption, and GSpeedR didn't really care what happened next.

Lucky enough for him, the BMW out-ran the Sirocco and then found himself at the starting line next the #27 of JDC442's Jaguar. The Jag had gone undefeated all day to make it this far. Could JDC keep his streak or would GSpeedR come back with a vengeance? The starting gate rose and they both rolled down the hill...it was a tight race until the final inch! Both cars pulled around to find out who had won and when the judges raised GSpeedR's hand in victory the crowd went ape. Babies cried, eagles soared...but wait! This was a double elimination tournament, which meant JDC got an immediate rematch. After all, this was his first loss and everyone races twice. Could the BMW hold up through one more race?

Engines revved, babies cried...okay, you know the rest...down the hill they went into the stretch only to see the JDC442 Jag hit the finish line first. Your Euro Grand Prix champion, JDC442 and his Jaguar D-Type.

And that's the story, full of highs and lows, smiles and frowns. Everyone brought the A-game but we all know there are winners and there are losers. Surprisingly enough, today, everyone lost at some point but in the end all that matters is who gets to the finish line first in the last race, and today that was JDC442.

Congratulations to JDC442 on being the Euro Grand Prix champion. He will receive a prize package from Tom's Diecast Cars and Redline Derby Racing.

I'll be sending back cars over the next weekend or so. If anyone needs their car back sooner than later, PM me and I'll be sure to get it out next day or so. Otherwise, thanks again to everyone that entered and thanks to those of you that included some donor cars with your entries - they will be put to good use once the Fantasy League boots up again next year.

Happy racing!!

Here's to getting trounced, good stuff regardless. Congrats JDC, and the rest of the race winners....

Thanks for hosting Brian.

This is one SWEET Victory!!! I knew that GsR would be sending in some raw speed -I experienced his prowess in Pennsylvania during the Redline National League tournament. Looks like his BMW definitely made things interesting! Funny thing is my runner up car for this race was a green BMW M1 (fte mod however)

What happened to TEam HAlf FAst???

GGGREAT SHOW BRIAN!! CAN'T WAIT FOR THE VIDEO!!! HOPE WE'LL BE SEEING MORE OF THESE RDR HOME VENUES!!

good show "B"... congrats 442 and a nod to gspeedr... "fast" fred's stroller prepped audi showed the sloppy the door!

What happened to TEam HAlf FAst???

I was wondering the same thing!
My car went out Tuesday.

The runner-up from the lower bracket was GSpeedR and his BMW:

Is that BMW sporting Ultra Hots wheels?!!

Nice job JDC442!

How many cars did Clayfeat beat...........I got confused.

@EconoCarl - What was your car? I know you were one of the first to jump on with this mail-in but I didn't see any other packages in my entry box when I was checking in cars yesterday Hmmm...I'll do another sweep and if I happen to find your box, I'll send you some goodies in apology. Sorry, man. I'll be pissed if I just misplaced your package.

As far as video goes...that will be slow coming and dreadfully boring, I fear. I rebuilt my computer in the summer and lost my Adobe video editor. I'm trying out the Windows Movie Maker thing and finding it's not offering the tools I'm used. However, regardless of tools, I used my iPad to shoot video this time and the orientation of the film is vertical, which doesn't make for a nice widescreen experience. I wanted to get some better video and in effort of that got crappier video...sigh. I'll post what video I got once I get it all together with captions and stuff.

Is that BMW sporting Ultra Hots wheels?!!

Yes, stock repro UHs on strait axles...saturated w/graphite. Original UHs were the "FTEs" of the early `80s.

@EconoCarl - What was your car? I know you were one of the first to jump on with this mail-in but I didn't see any other packages in my entry box when I was checking in cars yesterday.

My car was a yellow/gray Lamborghini Estoque.
I mailed in last Tuesday because the PO was closed on Columbus Day.
No problem, just mail it back if it shows up.

I'm packing up entries to ship out and I'm realizing that I didn't pay attention to which people sent in cars in blisters versus those that didn't (except those that had your name on them). So I'm just putting cars that fit in blisters. My apologies, hope it's no big deal. If you get one, just use it for the next tournament and someone else might get a chance to use it too.

@EconoCarl - Your Euro Car entry was at the post office today so it did arrive, just came after I did the last pickup last Saturday. Sorry. I'll be shipping it back to you this week.

need the RLD paypal info for return funds $

Clayfeat and I got our cars this weekend....and she is bragging about getting 3rd place.

go CLAY FEATS go ...

Arrrggh!!

Okay, well, I finally got the video together and uploaded it to YouTube. I had to use the Windows Movie Maker instead of my usual video editing software so this isn't anywhere near the quality of production that I want or that I'm worthy of but I wanted to get this up before I forgot and just lost more time. So my apologies for the small size and vertical camera angle...I blame my iPad. Probably best if you watch it fullscreen.

Anyhoo...the video includes most of the races. Some failed to record and some just turned out poorly thanks to my iPad so you won't see every race. Most of the race clips have bumpers showing which cars are racing but a few don't so you'll just have to keep an eye out for the changes. (And there's no sound or music)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=6smMtAt9UZU

I enjoyed the vid, Brian. Also, finally picked up my Bimmer from the PO yesterday.

I thought the video was excellent Brian!! The camera angle worked well with the slow-mo. Some very close racing -the BMW and the JAG were very evenly matched. I played the song Sober by Tool while watching to give it that extra kick.
